Help A Living Library and Life Frames, Inc. in the community! Help get our work and projects known by helping with press releases, website, blog, creating flyers, street fairs, community meetings and other opportunities to communicate with the public.
We have eco-transformation programs in 6 schools in SF in 3 neighborhoods: Excelsior, Bernal Heights, Chinatown and in New York City on Roosevelt Island. Another exciting initiative is the Bernal Heights Living Library & Think Park Nature Walk underway leading to the Islais Creek at the south side of St. Mary's Park. We have already planted 600 California Native trees ! We are adding more trees, and soon understory, interpretive signage leading to the currently hidden Islais Creek that we would eventually like to daylight. This area is part of San Francisco's largest watershed, the Islais Creek Watershed that links at least 11 communities in southeast and southwest SF. This Creek is currently covered by development and there is much work to do to educate the community about its existence and importance.
Here are a few links about the Islais Creek and Life Frames' involvement to peak your interest, and a link to our blog:
The mission of Life Frames, Inc is to develop site and culturally-sensitive designs for community learning environments in different locales with extensive community involvement through Community Research Mentoring Teams that utilize all the resources in the area--human, ecological, economic, historic, technological, and aesthetic. Each of these environments has integrated programs, project-based interdisciplinary curricula, and community-originated products establishing the sites as vital life-long learning magnets for the community as well as adding to the economic and community development of each area.
The Goal of Life Frames is to develop Branch Living Libraries in different communities of the world to be connected using state-of-the-art communications technologies. The programs and projects of Life Frames, Inc. are meant to link and demonstrate the interconnections between systems and phenomena--biological, cultural, and technological.
Volunteers will have the unique opportunity to work with a cutting-edge, growing, environment, education and multi-arts nonprofit, Life Frames, Inc., dedicated to integrating community resources, working with local stakeholders, and transforming the environment. They will assist the Project Director or A.L.L. teachers to design and implement community outreach, teach gardening and ecology to local children and adults, perform gardening and landscaping, and help develop communications strategies for the environmental transformation of several Branch Living Library & Think Parks in San Francisco and New York.
